Is romance in the air at your house?

We never grow too old for romance.

Want proof? Just look at the romance genre. Sales continue to climb. I’m not talking just about erotica (smut novels per my daughter.)

Want to write a bestselling novel?

Add romance to the formula.

Whether you self-publish or traditional,  write mysteries, women’s fiction, dystopian, YA, LGBT fiction, horror, or thriller, add a little romance and you’ve got a bestseller on your hands.

 

Why?

Because everyone loves a good love story.

Still not convinced? Check out the top Amazon 100 ebooks or the NYT Best Seller list and see for yourself. Read some of the book blurbs, I bet you’ll see lots of references to love. Even one of the hottest new YA futuristic book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline mentions a love connection. 

So tell me—

Could your current work in progress use a little romance? 

Have you given much thought to how hot the romance genre is?

 

That’s it for today. Short and sweet because I’ve got a big romantic evening to plan. 

So go curl up with a good romantic movie or book and get your groove on.

  1. You are quite right about adding romance to nearly any genre. It’s not only books, but movies and TV shows where the dynamic tension of at least one pair of work partners in an ensemble cast involves “will they or won’t they” romance. Mysteries and detective stories are rife with it. I am working on a sci-fi novel that will have that element as well.
